Hector Pollitt is a Director and the Head of Modelling at Cambridge Econometrics. He is a post-Keynesian economist with particular expertise in macroeconomic modelling, which he has developed through more than 15 years of working with the global macro-econometric E3ME model. His research focuses on the complex linkages between the economy and the consumption of natural resources. Much of his recent work, both on a research and consultancy basis, is centred around applications of the E3ME model for policy analysis.

At European level, Hector has contributed macroeconomic analysis to the official Impact Assessments of the EU’s long-term climate strategy and prior to that for the 2030 climate and energy targets. He is also actively involved in modelling exercises in East Asia, in India and in Latin America. He has published as co-editor two books on modelling climate policy in the East Asian region.

Hector’s expertise extends beyond the use of E3ME and he frequently carries out model review and comparison exercises, including for the UNFCCC. He holds a BSc in mathematics and economics from the University of Nottingham, UK.
